Thea's Champion of Champion's race report

June 20, 2018

everactiv ambassador Thea before her race

A few weeks ago I did a series of four races called the Summer Fun Run Series. Each race was 1600m, they were very fun and overall I was 2nd P6 girl. Because I was 2nd in my age group I got to go to the Champion of Champions race which was open to the fastest runners from the fun run series which had taken place across Aberdeen city.

The night before the race I was really excited and I had thought out my race plan. This was to try and stay in the leading group for whole race and then to try and get a medal. I decided I was going to get a good nights sleep so I was ready for my run.



We arrived at the playing fields about half an hour before my run and I met my friends and played about for a little bit. Shortly before my race I did a warm up with my friends, I did some lunges, butt kicks, high knees, high kicks, jogging, sprinting and then some stretching.

When they called my race I headed off to the start line and listened to the race briefing. As soon as the briefing was over we lined up and got ready to start. The starting horn sounded and we all started racing. I focused on staying with the leading group. The race was going at a fast pace but I managed to stay in the leading group for the entire race. Over the last 300m I sprinted past someone and kept pumping my arms and pushing for the finish line. I finished in 5th place, just seconds behind the winners. As soon as I had crossed the finish line I sat down on the soggy grass to catch my breath and to congratulate the other girls.

Although my race didn’t quite go to plan I still felt really proud of myself because, even though I didn’t get a medal, I still felt like I had, because I tried my hardest. From my race I have learnt that I am quite good at running 1600m, but I need to work on my sprint finish. I was also really pleased because I have been getting stitches when running recently but this time I didn’t.
